Who ever really wants to know Alsace should stop by the old medieval town of Bergheim. Situated on the Wine route at the foot of Haut-Koenigsbourg, Bergheim is in the heart of the Alsace wine country.
It was in 1312 that Bergheim was incorporated as a”free city». With this status came a host of privileges: the right to tax wine sales and to coin money, the famous prerogative to grant asylum to any and all who took refuge within its walls.
Faithful to family tradition since 1760, Family Hugg has spread its reputation for Fine Wines to the four corners of the earth. The company is proudly devoted to the art of producing Fine Wines and takes pleasure in passing on to wine and food lovers around the world the benefit of their knowledge of Alsace wines.
Their vineyards cover more than 10 hectares of vines in a region especially favoured by nature.
The named-places « Goldesch » and « Rotenberg” are very well appropriate to respectively the Riesling and the Gewurztraminer. The “Altenberg of Bergheim is classified as a Grand Cru vineyard and produces rich and full-bodied Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer wines.
